Turkish cooking has grown into one of the hottest contemporary trends in America’s culinary scene. As one might deduce from Turkey’s geographic location, its cooking straddles both Arabic and European traditions. This eye-catching cookbook’s full-color illustrations only enhance the engaging text, which thoughtfully lays out the differences in cooking styles among Turkey’s several regions. Many of the recipes, such as green-lentil pies and various stuffed eggplants and zucchini, will attract vegetarians in particular, but their bold flavors and opulent spicing will give these vegetables the widest possible audience. Meat dishes focus on lamb and beef, with kebabs in the forefront but giving place also to stewed and ground meats. Turkey’s maritime regions offer grilled and baked seafood. Pastry aficionados will immediately recognize the plethora of phyllo-encased meats and vegetables. Recipes call for only a few ingredients not stocked in comprehensive American supermarkets or readily available by mail order. --Mark Knoblauch

An ingredient glossary, 200-plus recipes, and a shopping guide covering major U.S. regions round out the good instruction and revealing narrative detailing one of the world's most influential cuisines." --Library Journal
"The Turkish Cookbook is a total trove of great ideas for making vegetables stars. As the cover indicates, it does not flinch from meat, and meat is integral to the Turkish kitchen. But what appealed to me were all the spreads and salads and pastas and boereks." --Epicurious --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
